1. Ever wonder what happened to Kevin’s ticket in “Home Alone”?


His dad threw it out by accident! So the whole movie could’ve been prevented if he had just watched what he was tossing in the trash.

Then again, they probably shouldn’t have forgotten their son in the first place.

2. Chicha from The Emperor’s New Groove (2000) is the first pregnant female character to appear in a Disney animated feature film, according to the DVD commentary. She’s also one of the first mother characters in a Disney film not to be killed off or villainized.


3. In Toy Story 4 (2019), a car has the licence plate “RMRF97”. In 1997, someone at Pixar accidentally typed “rm -r -f “, deleting the entire Toy Story 2 movie from the Pixar database. Fortunately, the film’s supervising technical director had a backup copy at home, and the movie was restored.

6. In Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead man’s chest (2006), actor Mackenzie Crook had to wear two contact lenses on top of one another, to portray his characters wooden eye. He said: “It’s uncomfortable…but not painful. And it helps the character, because without it, I’m just any other pirate.”


7. In POTC: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), most of Jack Sparrow’s hats are made of rubber. This is because Johnny Depp kept losing them and throwing them overboard. After he lost ten leather hats, the costume designer started making them out of rubber so that they would float instead of sink.

11. In ‘Dazed and Confused’ (1993) when Matthew McConaughey said “Hey, watch the leather, man!” and starts laughing he was high for real. He recently talked about it in a Howard Stern interview.


12. In ‘The Wrestler’ (2008), they didn’t shut down the deli counter while they filmed Randy working there. Those are real customers, and everything Mickey Rourke does is improvised.


13. In order to prepare for his role in “Master and Commander” (2003), Russell Crowe spent 3 months learning violin, calling it the hardest thing he’d ever done for a film. He later sold the 130 year old violin used in the movie for £73,528.


14. In Mad Max (1979), Toecutter’s gang was actually played by a real biker gang: “The Vigilanties”. They also performed many of the stunts in the movie. In fact, they proved so proficient, one even doubled for Goose to do his donut in a later scene.
